Check the ground wire on the back of the lights see if one of them is broken or not making good contact,also check switch under dash if possible for lose wires

My front and rear parking lights stay on. I have to pull the fuse every time at night so not to drain the battery.


Replace the headlight switch. The button on the switch is not turning off all the way.

MY Park lights and dash board wont come on


Check your fuses first, park lights, I think. Pull the light switch to first click and check if your front park lights are on. If no lights are on, the headlight switch is probably bad. If the fronts work, but no tail lights or dash lights, the problem is probably a wiring problem under the dash. The same wire to the rear tail lights is usually with a splice to the dash illumination lights.

1989 buick park avenue battery wont stay charged


A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

Grand Prix 2003 first no running lights tail lights or cluster lights. All fuses were good. Changed out the small box under the steering column. Not the chime box. After doing that I had running lights...


Daytime running lamps control module. Fuse #37 - inside the passenger compartment or under hood fuse box ? Do you know how to use a volt meter an wiring diagram to find electrical problems ? You have a direct short to ground or fuse #37 wouldn't blow. Underhood fuse box fuse # 37 is for the park lamps .Supply's B+ voltage to the daytime running lamps module an the headlamp switch plus 37
PARK LP Fuse

Headlamp Switch, Body Control Module (BCM), and Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU)...
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LP fuse in the underhood accessory wiring junction block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, battery positive voltage is applied to the park lamp circuit. The parklamp circuit then applies battery positive voltage to the DRL control module and to all the marker, park and tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302 The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left ON. If the park lights are turned ON after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain ON until turned OFF or the battery runs dead.

1998 gm pickup truck tail lights came on when no switches were on now fuel pump is not pumping


YOU STILL NEED TO HAVE THE BATTERY FULLY CHARGE . LIGHT USE 5 TO 7 AMP FOR THE ECM TO POWER UP. IT NEED A FULL CHARGE. THE TAIL LIGHT WILL DRAIN THE BATTERY AND WILL NOT WORK. JUMP TRUCK AND REPLACED BRAKE STWITH OR ADJEST IT.WITH A GOOD BATTERY KEY ON YOU WILL HEAR THE PUMP RUN FOR 15 TO 20 SECONDS AND IT SHOULD RUN

Click on the link.
Did you check the park fuses, note the diagram, rr and lr. Use a test light to check voltage at fuse circuit, headlamp switch on. That should tell us if problem is before the fuse or after.
You always want to check voltage and ground circuits, for lamps. Do the front park lamps work?

Tail lights stay on


There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.
